All I know is I have played them all and the one I like the best is the old green board ones. All the others were kind of brite to my ears.

To be honest I havent played a III , but have owned a USA and mexico made model.I now own a NOS with the jensen .I have to say this is my favorite so far.The III has a "sparkle mod" that gives it more of a blackface tone (I believe) and a regular jewel light.

Goes into detail about the earlier ones. The only real (read: non-cosmetic) difference with the 3 other than the speaker is the sparkle mod as mentioned above. IMO this does not make the amp more blackface sounding. But then again I don't even think it makes the amp brighter sounding. I played my III (when I owned it) beside an earlier version and the earlier version was much brighter and harsher. The III never got icepicky like that on me and was overall a smoother sound I thought.
But honestly if you are buying one of these unless you really like the look of a particular version (and there's nothing wrong with that) you should probably just get one that you get a good deal on and then put any speaker/tubes in it you like.
